[Q] Sudden Battery Drain on stock phone
So as it says, I am having a sudden issue with my battery. For the first few weeks after I bought this phone, I was sitting at nearly 2 full days before charging again. The past few weeks.. it has been decreasing steadily. From 2 full days to having to charge my phone every 1.5 days.. and now down to 1 day. This morning I wake up and my battery is being ridiculous. This was an overnight charge. I had only touched my phone last night to text and that was all.
I do not have have my phone rooted, and I would love to be able to fix the issue without rooting if possible! I really dislike losing all my game progresses when having to flash or factory reset anything.
As you can see in the attachment below.. I HAD great battery life. I played games frequently throughout the day.. used the phone quite often to text, facebook, chat on hangouts and still had 2 full days before needing to charge again.
Yes I've disabled a LOT of bloatware. I keep my location and bluetooth off at all times. I turned the WIFI from "Always on" to "Only when charging".I keep my screen brightness turned down and set to automatic. I turned off Google Search. I DO have motion gestures turned on, ONLY for the palm swipe screen capture.
I tried searching the forums for the answer and could not find one that directly applies to my issue. Most of them were short battery lives out of the box or shortened with the update in April.
I would appreciate any suggestions that you may have!
